>> osgood: it happened this past week. two possible alternatives to computer passwords. security experts have been nagging us about passwords for years now. use at least eight characters, they say. mix upper and lower case letters with numbers and symbols. don't use names or birth dates. use different passwords for each account. change your passwords frequently. above all don't ever write all those different passwords down. well now comes word of possible relief from yahoo! and microsoft. yahoo! has introduced a system for sending single-use passwords on demand to mobile phone users. you receive a new password every time you wish to access your account. while microsoft is proposing biometric authentication. that's where your computer will recognize your face, iris or
fingerprint. your face may not be able to launch a thousand ships but at least it could launch an online search. neither plan is foolproof of course. critics say yahoo!'s single use passwords could spell trouble if your phone falls into the wrong hands. while facial recognition is still not reliable. which leaves doubters still stuck in password limbo. to come up with password is a slog. might be that you will forget it? oh, yes. just ahead an opera conduck for with a nose for fragrances. , trt: :30 c cbs cares - justin constantine: overcoming adversity jc14oa30, trt: :30 a new form of innovation is taking
